Being arrested for driving while intoxicated is a frightening experience. This is especially true when it is a person’s first encounter with the Alabama criminal justice system, as it’s unlikely they fully understand their rights when detained or arrested. For example, by consenting to a law enforcement official’s request to a preliminary breath test or roadside sobriety test, you are voluntarily aiding them in obtaining evidence that can later be used to arrest and convict you. If you’re facing charges of driving while intoxicated in the state of Alabama and are worried that you may have incriminated yourself unnecessarily, you should get in touch with an aggressive Alabama drunk driving attorney immediately.
Keeping You On The Road.
When you are arrested for drunk driving, you have a limited amount of time to prevent your license from being suspended. This is true whether or not you are eventually convicted of your offense. If you have been charged with DUI, you have a window of only ten days to file a petition with the Department of Public Safety requesting an administrative hearing. If you fail to request a hearing, your license will be suspended automatically by the DPS within eight weeks of your arrest. We can help you prevail in an administrative hearing and protect your driving privileges.
